Equipment: Cyfuse Biomedical Regenova Bio 3D Printer
Reagents: Primary Cells, Media
Software: Special B3D software for designing three dimensional tissue structure
Species: Human & Animal

Advanced tissue-engineering services are available using a new three-dimensional bioprinting approach called the “Kenzan Method”. Utilizing Cyfuse Biomedical’s Regenova® 3D Bio Printer, a robotic system that fabricates three-dimensional tissue from primary cells, Cell Applications has created a powerful bio-printing model that makes scaffold-free, primary cell-based tissue available.

The instrument assembles 3D macroscopic tissue by lancing primary cell spheroids onto a fine needle array. Pre-programmed software guides the collection of the spheroids, which can then be designed and fused into various tissue configurations. As the cells mature, they self-organize, promoting strong, reliable tissue that is further optimized by the design of the bio printer’s needle array that allows for optimum circulation of culture medium. The Method is a gentler approach and increases the percentage of viable cells. The method has already been utilized or assessed to create blood vessels, nerve and functional liver-like tissues. Other anticipated applications include cardiac muscle and pancreatic islets, as well as spinal cord, urologic, trachea, skin and digestive tissues.

Customers can select from CAI's extensive bank of standard human and animal primary cells. Alternatively, primary cells can be custom-isolated from virtually and mammalian tissue, whether normal or diseased.

INTEGRATION-FREE IPSC GENERATION AND VALIDATION

Our HiPSC are generated by using the RNA-based Sendai virus to deliver reprogramming factors to donor skin fibroblasts. Since the Sendai virus is an RNA virus that does not go through a DNA phase, its genetic material as well as the transgenes do not integrate into the host cells genome.

Reprogramming triggers a cascade of evident changes in the host cells that are recognizable morphologically and through a combination of markers and pluripotency assays. Our HiPSCs display classic pluripotent stem cell morphology, with a high nucleus to cytoplasm size ratio, as well as they are amenable to be cultivated in serum-free media, independent of feeder cells and of feeder-conditioned media as colonies or high density monolayers. hiPSCs are also evaluated for the presence of karyotypic abnormalities. Confirmation of pluripotency is performed through the analysis of expression of several established independent pluripotency markers. Unguided differentiation confirms HiPSC ability to generate cell derivatives of tissues arising from the three embryonic layers.
Cell Characterization. Post-thawing viability of HiPSCs is typically higher than 70%, and HiPSC have demonstrated coherent pluripotent behavior over more than 60 passages. Although it is in theory possible to propagate HiPSCs indefinitely, HiPSC subculturing over passages higher than is usually not recommended, as the chances of karyotypic abnormalities increase. HiPSCs are also tested to ensure absence of microorganism contaminants.

Cyto-X: High sensitivity and cell viability. Cyto-X is a ready-for-use cell viability reagent for proliferation assays. When added to cell culture, a highly water-soluble tetrazolium salt is reduced by dehydrogenases in live cells to form an orange colored formazan product that is soluble in culture medium. The amount of formazan product is directly proportional to the enzymatic activity of dehydrogenases and the number of living cells. With its high sensitivity and low cytotoxicity, Cyto-X outperforms traditional assays using other tetrazolium salts such as MTT, XTT, MTS or WST-1.
